I have a red sport classic with a monoposto seat the bike was moded this way.
I'd like to trade my present set up for a biposto setup with a red cowling.
Now I don't want to spend money.... so a straight swap in the LA So Cal area is what I'm looking for, not a Nigerian Bride. Anybody?

Good luck with your quest, dogtownducati. Just two quick observations.
I have both seats, and can report that the monoposto seat is significantly lighter. Also, I've mixed and matched seats and cowls, and although the cowl part numbers may be different, they are in fact interchangeable.
No Nigerian brides (or offers of commisions for bank transfers) :D

dogtown,
A red, tricked-out and faired monoposto?
of a rider who dreams : "if only it was a biposto..."?
In SoCal?
:D:D:D
Yeah, right, you can always ask...

Alternative is to turn yours into a monoposto.
What do you need? a swingarm? cut off the triangles?
May be easier and quicker...:think:

Question: is your seat the "comfort seat" or is it just a regular mono seat?

if it's the comfort seat I may be interested...otherwise there is no point for me, sorry.

my bike is black but you can keep your cowl, as stated above, they are interchangeable. I'll just have to include the leather piece that is used on the biposto seats.

let me know!

attached is what the comfort seat looks like. I think the regular mono does not have the horizontal stitch in the middle and has a more shiny finish vs matte for the comfort seat, so it should be easy to spot... (anyone else care to point out further differences?)

cheers,
David

My apologies, but I mentioned the trade to my GF and that I wouldn't be able to take her for rides and she felt dissed. :(

it's gonna be one of those where I have to listen, otherwise my statement would clearly be that I'm not planning on taking her ever again... not smart.

you guys go ahead and make fun of me now... thx. :abduct:

cheers!
D.

Dogtown: I'm interested in swapping seats with you if you're still looking.

oh well

I'll figure out something for luggage, that's why I wanted the biposto seat.
You should buy GF a nice monster.

I'm a 9-5 guy, so an evening or weekend would work better for me. I am off tomorrow though if you have time. I'll PM you with my number so we can figure something out.
